planet. he refers to it as the bonobo handshake. it's not that they even find each other attractive -- >> no, it's a negotiation. >> reporter: and it's hardly surprising that many of these negotiations take place over food. chimpanzees will fight each other over food. >> chimpanzees get primed for competition, testosterone inea that drives them to want to be reassured and then they want a bonobo handshake to feel together. >> doesn't matter even the ages. >> any combination, any age. >> reporter: it's an irony that this peace loving primate is being hunted to extinction. though it's illegal to kill or capture bonobo's in the congo,

3:54 am
their numbers in the wild will have to grow. seven years ago the team from lola decided to try to release some back into the forest. nothing like it had ever been done with bonobos before. they hand picked nine apes they felt would do well on their own. they have to be able to get along in a group as well as be strong themselves? >> you chose people to go to the moon. >> reporter: it's not quite the release the bonobos is about as remote a place as you can find on the planet. it's a three hour flight deep into the northern wilderness of the congo and then up the river in a dugout canoe. life along the river hasn't changed much in centuries. congo is one of the least developed countries in the world. it has millions of acres of virtually untouched forests.
